MIS PET ITIA TVT Y
The Night Hunter.
MESSES. EDITORS: The following was sug?
gested by an incident related to the author,
when traveling, many years ago, among
tho Seminole Indians, or before tho tribe
was removed from Florida to their proscut
location in the Arkansas Territory:
Still was Night's silver Boonery,
And silence reign'd o'er all tho wilds;
But who on steals from tree to tree,
With bended bow? What dream beguiles
That darkling hunter of the night?
For human game, the trail ho takes
Tho friend so falso and maid so light,
Who bis fond faith betrayed. When
Tho moon's palo eye, tho landscape o'er
Dim brooding; through tlio glassy dews
His phantom foes, that tty before
His shaft, he, panting, thus pursues.
Now by tho lake, where flows no tide
Typ? of Iiis woe-struck soul-be stands;
Or on thc prairie's busby side.
Like statue in enchanted lands;
Or now thc forest's lofty ball,
Whcro trails each tree, its stole of sbado,
In tragic state-or spread like pall,
He treads. The bear and wolf, dismay'd,
Shrink from his path. But when rebnrna
Day's beam on tho mountain's bead,
As waked from trance, he sad returns
To bis bark hut's leafy bed.
When reason flies, and hopo and love
No moro tho Wighted bosom rive
Its last decision but to prove,
Why, memory, dost thou survive?
With light false as tho fitful ray
That glares the stormy ocean o'er
Loading the lost more far astray,
And maddening even madness more.
THE GnOGER'S STOBY*
"If it is the policeman, I'll make
him pay dearly for it," as I slunk
along tho sidewalk to tho corner,
keeping in the shadow all the way,
and when I stood beside the box and
and saw by the light of the lamp,
close by, that the ham was there,
wrapppd in something which looked
like a handerkerchief, I bit my lips
and clenched my hands with rage.
Had it been a common thief, I should
not so much have minded; but a
policemen ! it was more than I could
staud. So I crouched myself in a
doorway and waited. Thc watch
were relieved at 12 o'clock; I- knew
that, and knew also that this would
be the timo when my policeman
would come to t?ke tlie ham from out
of its hiding place. Aud sure enough,
when the time came, I heard him
ch allenge the man who was to take
his place, and come marching down
toward the corner. I let him get the
ham well under his arm before I
stirred, but then I pounced upon him
like a tiger.
' 'I've got you !" I cried. ' 'A pretty
policeman you are, indeed; but yon
shall suffer for it; you shall suffer for
it, I can tell you."
"He struggled with me for a mo?
ment like a wild thing, and then all
of a sudden dropped the ham and fell
down in a helpless sort ot a heap upon
"I'm a ruined man!" he groaned,
' 'a ruined man ! there's no hope for
me now. Oh my God ! my wife-my
poor little wife!" and ho burst out
crying, like a woman.
4 'The sight softened me, but I was
'."iou should have thought of that
before you became a thief," I said.
If the guardian of a man's property
is not to be trusted, what is to be?
come of him? And you look like a
gentleman-you do not seem like a
scoundrel-how have you over stoop?
ed to do such a disgraceful thing as
* 'He was standing beside mo now,
and the lamp-light fell upon his face.
It was white as any corpse's and Iiis
eyes glittered terribly.
.'I'll tell you what made modo it,'
ho said; "it was the ouly thing which
could have driven mo to an act like
that; my wife and child aro starving
-starving, I tell you, and I had noth?
ing for them!"
' 'Policemen's families do not of ter
starve," I said, with a sneer.
'Tvly God! can't you believe mc
won't you believe me?" panted th?
man. "I have only been appointe*
throe days; I have not received i
ceut of salary yet. I have been ill i
long while, and had neither monoi
nor credit. Last night we went t<
bed snpperless; to-dny there has no
been a crust in tho house, and thoa
hams tempted mo so. You can neve
know how awfully they tempted me
and I meant to pay you afterwards.'
"He covered his face with hi
hands, and I could see great tear
dripping through his fingers, am
before I knew it, my own cheeks wer
moist, and so we stood silent, witl
the ham lying between us ou th
"At last ho turned towards me um
said, 'Do what you like with nu
The last hope is gone.'
"But I put my hand on his an:
and said, 'God forbid that I shouh
luke the last hope from you ; that 1
of all men, should bc tho one to rai
you. If your story is true-and
believe it is-I pity you more than
"He looked at me in a sort of bc
wildored way, as though ho searcel
understood me, and I took hi m b
tho arm and led him back to tho shot
There I filled a basket with bread
butter and coffee, and put the har
on top of all. 'Take it home to you
wife,' I said, 'you'll pay me whe
you get your salary, and if you are i
need beforo that time, come to nu
I'm a poor mau, myself, and I ca
feel for other poor men.'
"I shall never forget that man
face in all my life, so wondering, B
thankful, and so awe-stricken. All J.
he said was, 'God bless you,' but
there was a whole sermon in those
three -words, and I slept bettor for ?
"On Christmas night ho paid me i
every cent, and from that day till X
left thc neighborhood dealt with mo
regularly. But times grew so much
better that I took a .store in a good
street at the other end of tho town,
and one way aud another Raw no

"One night, just such a cold night
as that on which I first saw him star?
ing at the hams, I was awakened
long after midnight by a cry of fire,
and started up to seo tho names
through the floor, and to know the
store down stairs was all ablaze.
Tho stairs were on fire, also, and
when, as I opened the entry door,
the hot air and smoke rushed in an d
almost smothered me, I gave up all
hope of getting my poor wife and
our helpless little ones out of that
burning building alive and safe.
Help came to us, however, and
though in clambering down tho lad?
der I slipped and broke my arm. I
was thankful when I saw, as I
thought, all were safe. I was so
faint and ill from the accident, you
see, that I hadn't all my wits about
me, and believed there was no one
missing. My blood ran eold when
my wife, clasping her hands, with an
awful look upon her face, screamed:
"Our little Lucy, our little Lucy is
"She had slept with our hired girl
since her baby brother w?is born, and
tho woman, in her fright, had forgot?
ten tho little one. There she was at
the top of that burning building, out
of the reach of any human help; it
seemed to me, as I looked up at the
walls, a great, red and 3-ellow sheet
of flame, with blue gleams here and
there, as though devilish heads were
peeping out and grinning at us.
Still, hopeless as it was, 1 should
have gone back into the burning
house and saved my baby or died
with her, if I had been able to stand.
No one else would venture. It would
be a foolish sacrifice of life, they
said, for no doubt the child was
already smothered by the smoke, and
though I raved and plead and made
wild promises, they shook their heads
and only bade me have patience.
"Patience! I thought that I was
going mad as the face of my little
girl-my sweet, pretty pet-rose up
before me. But just then a tall mun
dashed through the crowd and came
"Quick! ho shouted, which room ?
the child in-speak quickly-which
"Tho back oue on the uppei
floor, I groaned, and he dashed a\va\
from me, parting tho throng with hi.?
strong arms, and in another moment
I saw him mounting the ladder. J
heard them calling him to come back,
bidding him beware, and speaking ol
him as though he were dead already.
But he never heeded them, and as ]
saw him hidden by the black smoke
which poured from the window, J
covered my face and prayed that th?
angels who walked in the fien* fur
nace might go with him.
"Perhaps they did. Something
stronger than an earthly thing mus
have been there, for in a fev
minutes-they seemed years to nu
then-we saw him coming down tin
ladder with something in his arms
'The burnt body of my child, per
haps,' T thought, but as he cami
closer I saw that it was my owi
laughing, living darling, with he
blue eyes open and her little ann
about his neck.
"The roof fell in the next moment
but my treasure was safe and that wa
all I cared for.
"What shall 1 say or do to than!
you," I said, as 1 grasped his hand
"I'm a ruined man, and T can onb
give you my blessing; but let in
know your name at least."
"Havo you forgotten mo? don't yoi
remember me?" he said, as he ben
over me. 4 ?Look agaiu. ''
"I did. I saw a pair of bright gra
eyes, a face, 1 knew, and somethinj
glittering 011 his breast. And th
scene at tho corner of the dirty littl
street, on a wet December nigh I
came back to me, and I saw m
policeman once more.
"It is you," I said, "and you hav
saved my child from such an awfi
"And what did you save me an
mino from?" he said, with tears in hi
eyes. "Starvation, ruin, utter degn
dation. I should have been a feloi
and my dear ones paupers this nigh
but for you. I have not paid til
debt; I never CHU; but when I heat
that it was your child that lay at tl
top of that burning building, I pin?
ed that I might save it, and I knd

"And then he told me what hu
brought him to the neighborhood c
that night of all others in the yea

insured, but ho was prosperous an

"And the policeman?" I asked.
"His hair is as white as my ow
now," said the old man. "And 11

night, is married to his son."

INCREASE OF RATS.-Tho Farmer's
Gazette (English) asserts and proves by
figures that one parr of RATS will have a
progeny and descendants no less than
651,050 in three years. Now, unless this
immense family can be kept down, they
would consume more food than would sus?
tain 65,000 human beings.

whoever aids in exterminating rats is a
benefactor. We should like some one to
?ive us the benefit of their experience in
riving out these pests. Wc needsomething
besides dogs, cats and traps for this busi?
ness.- Scieidific American, JV. Y.

distant as possible from where it was taken.
